    Pitting corrosion on aluminum coping

    I am getting pitting corrosion on a section of aluminum coping closest to the equipment pad. I assume this is due the SWG system. How can I repair the coping to fill the holes?

    Can you post a picture?

    Generally speaking, you really don't want aluminum anywhere near a pool and certainly not near an SWG pool. If you do have aluminum, then it should be anodized aluminum. Also, any aluminum near the pool should be tied to a sacrificial anode (magnesium works best for aluminum). This will slow down the corrosion.
